Saft battery types

Elfa Elementenfabriek has been working with Saft for almost thirty years. The company has its headquarters and factory in France and also has factories in England, America and China.


The brand can be called the expert in the field of lithium battery technology, with more than 40 years of experience and a very wide range of batteries for different markets. Since a few years Saft is also owner of Tadiran. Together, these two brands are the global market leader for 3.6 volt lithium batteries.


Saft uses three different types of batteries. These are the nickel, primary lithium and rechargeable lithium (li-ion) batteries.


Nickel Batteries

Saft's nickel batteries are known for their excellent performance in extreme temperatures. They are therefore popular in the aviation industry. In addition, they are used for trains, drilling rigs and telecom masts, among other things.


Primary lithium batteries

These batteries offer "high-energy" and "high power" solutions. There are 3 variants of this type of battery: Li-SOCl2, Li-SO2, Li-MnO2. They are particularly interesting for applications that need to work for a long time and where it is difficult to replace the batteries. A difficult replacement is also often expensive. Since primary lithium batteries can perform for such a long time, they are especially interesting for gas, water and electricity meters.


Rechargeable lithium (li-ion) batteries

The most powerful li-ion batteries come from Saft. They are used for fighter jets and Formula 1 cars, among other things. This type of batteries can provide emergency power at -40°C.
